Arcade Fire have announced UK tour dates in support of their much-anticipated fifth album Everything Now, with presale tickets on sale Wed 26 Jul at 9am.

The Montreal based group kick off the run at Manchester Arena on Sun 8 Apr, before playing two shows at London's SSE Wembley Arena on Wed 11 and Thu 12 Apr.

The Infinite Content tour, named after Everything Now's seventh track, then comes to Birmingham's Genting Arena on Sun 15 Apr before finishing up at Glasgow's SSE Hydro on Mon 16 Apr.

Everything Now, released tomorrow (Fri 21 Jul), has been teased with the release of the title track, which recalls Andy Williams and ABBA and features some decorative panpipes. You couldn't say that about the magnificently gloomy songs on Funeral or Neon Bible, could you?

'Creature Comforts' and 'Signs of Life' further show the latest evolution of the band has been a success, two typically grandiose tracks that deal with the myriad pressures of modern life.

The impact of modern classics like 'Wake Up', 'No Cars Go', 'The Suburbs' and 'Afterlife' still hasn't dulled in the slightest, and the band are renowned for their uplifting live performances. Having teased this tour with some unbelievably intimate shows back in June, the big stages await them once again. We can't wait.
